A kindler, gentler blog contest

UPDATE: I've re-done the contest to make it lots easier on you! Sorry if you had something for the old version all ready to go, but I think you'll like this better! If you had a good recipe for me, you can still send it to me!

Blog contest... here we go! This one is REALLY easy. I promise. (Scouts' honor)

Complete the following:

"Summer always makes me think of __________________." 
You can fill in the blank with a single word or an entire essay, it's up to you! It can be funny, heartfelt, or whatever comes to mind for you. This one won't take much brain effort or time... both are at a premium for me these days so maybe you are feeling the same.

Let me get you started: Summer always makes me think of camping with my family when I was a kid. If you have more than one answer, you're in luck because you can enter as many times as you like!

Winner will receive this really nice, high end, guaranteed-to-make-you-think-about-summer book:

Raichlen has written several of these BBQ recipe books and they are fantastic! This one is jam packed with recipes like pizza, side dishes, roasted veggies... it goes on and on for 774 pages! Of course it also has basics like chicken, burgers and the like.

I wish I could tell you the author signed it, but he didn't. Maybe I'll sign it instead?
You must live within the continental US to win, only because this book is too heavy to ship to anywhere outside those borders. (You can enter if you live outside the continental us, you just won't win the book.)

Deadline is Tuesday, June 15 at straight-up noon.

Thank you for serving...

This comes a day late, but shouldn't we be giving honor to our fallen all days of the year? This Military Tribute rocks! God bless the USA!
